Brighton 3-2 United: 5 Matters Arising As Brighton Brushed Manchester United

After 36 long years of failing to beat Brighton Hove Albion at the Amex stadium, United made another effort and ended up with one of the most woeful performances of the José Mourinho era as they were mercilessly beaten 3-1 (sorry 3-2.....I forgot we scored in injury time).

Here are five (5) matters arising from this defeat.


1. IT WAS UNITED VS BRIGHTON 'MUNICH'. It was unbelievable that United were not only beaten, but outclassed and outplayed by a team that did not have a single goal attempt/shot on target against Watford last weekend.

Brighton looked fantastic, defending well and looking dangerous on the attack. United made them look like 'Brighton-Munich. ....Infact, #NaDemDeRushUs.
2. SUNDAY AWARD NITE It appears the Sunday evening clash was an award ceremony for Brighton. Glenn Murray was allowed his 1st ever goal against Manchester United, Duffy (scorer of the 2nd goal) was gifted his 1st ever Premier league goal.

United 2-1 Leicester: 5 Things We Learnt From The 'Opening Ceremony'

United opened the 2018/2019 Premier league season ''TGIF" clash with Leicester City at Old Trafford. It ended on a beautiful note as 2 goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw gave United a 2-1 victory.


Here are 5 things ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from this clash:
1. THE WORLD CUP CONTINUED
For our 'swaggerlicious' midfielder and world cup winner Paul 'Ikenna' Pogba, it was indeed a continuation of Russia 2018. He picked up right from where he stopped at Moscow. He opened the goal account for United with a well taken penalty, beating the 'professor of penalty saves' Kasper Schmeichel. 

What a night for Pogba; he wore the captain's arm band, had a good game and scored the 1st goal of the season!!
2. THE WORLD CUP IS OVER.
On the other end of the pitch, our own David 'Osinachi' De Gea put his world cup misery behind him where he made only one save out of 12 shots fired at him.


He picked up from where he left off last season making point blank saves l…
